What do you need to know about Solar Panels?

There's a lot of information out there about solar panels. We try and sum the main parts up below.
Solar panels are an eco-friendly and increasingly popular solution for harnessing the sun's energy to generate electricity for your home.

Made up of numerous photovoltaic (PV) cells, solar panels work by absorbing sunlight and converting it into usable power. This clean, renewable energy source not only lowers your energy bills, but also helps to reduce your carbon footprint, contributing to a more sustainable future for our planet.

As technology has advanced, solar panels have become more efficient and affordable, making them an attractive option for homeowners looking to invest in renewable energy. By installing solar panels on your property, you'll enjoy numerous benefits, such as energy independence, increased property value, and long-term savings. Plus, with various incentives and rebates available, the cost of going solar has never been more accessible.

Solar panels work by harnessing the power of the sun through photovoltaic (PV) cells. These cells are made of semiconductor materials, such as silicon, which have unique properties that enable them to convert sunlight into electricity. When sunlight hits the PV cells, it causes electrons to be released, creating an electrical current.

This current, known as direct current (DC), is then passed through an inverter, which converts it into alternating current (AC) – the type of electricity commonly used in homes and businesses.The AC electricity generated by your solar panels can power your home's appliances and electrical systems, reducing your reliance on the grid and lowering your energy bills. Any surplus energy produced can either be stored in a battery system for later use or, depending on local regulations, fed back into the grid, earning you credits or financial incentives.

By investing in solar panels, you'll not only enjoy greater energy independence but also contribute to a cleaner, more sustainable environment for future generations.
